The aim of the Sacco is to promote and facilitate the development of youth-friendly innovative, broad reaching, cost effective and convenient financial infrastructure to ease youth access to affordable financial services. The Sacco targets to reach a large number of the country’s economically active youth with the goal of eventually reducing the number of youth without access to formal financial services.

  • Vision: To contribute towards socio-economic development for national transformation

  • Mission: To provide youth-friendly financial services to economically active youth.


  • To promote economic interest of its members through a free association of people who save and lend money to one another.

  • To encourage among its members the spirit and practice of mutual help and self-help in accordance with co-operative principles to achieve common socio-economic development goals.

  • To enhance the mobilization of personal saving to increase domestic capital formation.
